Sentence Structures Structure means how you frame sentences. To be a meaningful sentence, it has to be framed properly. In other words, the parts in a sentence like noun, verb, adjective, pronoun, adverb, preposition, article or conjunction, all have to be put in their proper places. An improper framing will result in an odd or meaningless sentence. If you say ‘I from Bangalore am’, does it sound meaningful? In fact, you can’t call that a sentence. A sentence is a group of words put together in a meaningful way. Or proper words in proper places. From the point of view of the work that a sentence does, it can be divided into 4 main types. That means functionally sentences can be divided into 4 basic categories. They are 1. Statements. They are sentences which state or tell something and end with a full stop or period. Eg:- Bangalore is the capital of Karnataka. 2. Questions. A sentence which asks a question and ends with a question mark. Eg;- When are you going home? Do you know English? 3. Imperatives:- A sentence which asks a favor or gives a command is an imperative. It ends in a full stop. Eg:- Be quiet when I teach. Please close the door. 4. . 5. Exclamatory:- A sentence which shows our emotions especially surprise is exclamatory and ends with an exclamatory mark. Eg:- What a lovely flower!
